Best of Augusta Celebration
Even though our Best of Augusta feature has been around for 25-plus years, the excitement of a win for a local business, individual or organization never seems to wane.
From perennial winners like French Market Grille and Summerville Rags, to newcomers fab´rik and BirdDog Grille, the joy and excitement are palpable when we tell them the results of this year’s reader survey.
You’ll find our annual Best of Augusta feature beginning on page 32. Peruse the pages to find great places to eat, shop and have fun. You may discover something new to try or be pleased to see that your favorite is everyone else’s favorite too.
Best of Augusta gets even better when many of those winners generously contribute their food, talent or product to the Best of Augusta Celebration, which benefits the Greater Augusta Arts Council and Sacred Heart Cultural Center.
I’d like to invite you to this year’s party on Tuesday, Oct. 15, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Sacred Heart. Tickets are on sale now for $20 in advance and $25 at the door. All ticket sales benefit Sacred Heart and the Greater Augusta Arts Council, two wonderful organizations that need our support.
You may purchase tickets online at www.augustamagazine.com and at Sacred Heart Gift Shop, The Augusta Chronicle cashiers office on Broad Street and Columbia County News Times in Evans. You can visit with many of our winners, listen to their music and sample their food at the Best of Augusta Celebration.
This is our third year for the celebration at Sacred Heart and the venue received rave reviews from party-goers and winners alike. It’s a beautiful location to enjoy the best musical talent while sampling all the great food. As always, the winners are the real heroes of the Best of Augusta Celebration. It is their generous contribution of food, time and talent each year that has made this event so popular and successful.
We are very pleased to partner with the Arts Council and Sacred Heart on this fun, annual event. Hosting it at Sacred Heart has added beauty and history and has been an exciting change for our winners. If you haven’t been in a few years, be sure to come out and join us. We are looking forward to a special evening with our readers, customers and friends. See you there!
